Andriy Yarmolenko has thanked West Ham United fans for their support after he was ruled out for around six months through injury.

The Ukraine forward underwent successful surgery to repair a damaged Achilles tendon on Monday morning after being hurt during Saturday’s Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur at London Stadium.

“Hello everyone, I would like to say thanks for your support and wishes for my recovery. I really appreciate it,” said Yarmolenko, in an Instagram video posted on Wednesday evening.

Head of Medical Services Richard Collinge confirmed earlier this week that the operation had gone well and that the club’s medical staff will now work hard to support the 29-year-old throughout his rehabilitation process.

“His recovery will be planned very carefully and we have every confidence that he will return to full fitness within the scheduled timeframe,” said Collinge.

Everyone at West Ham United wishes Andriy a full and timely recovery.
